Zip track drop curtains run with side channels and are spring operated. The side channels are powder coated to match your home and there is a large range of fabrics available. No ground fixings are required.
The spline tape down each side slots into specially designed side channels that keeps the blind taut between pillars - no flapping or billowing.
We can make Zip track outdoor drop curtains in clearglass PVC with a coloured PVC border, as well as a large range of mesh fabrics, but mesh fabrics are recommended over clearglass PVC because clearglass PVC will warp permanently overtime making it difficult to roll the zip track drop curtains up and down smoothly.
Our Clearglass PVC is 0.75mm thick and fire retardant, so is suitable for public places, daycares and kindys.
Ziptrak drop curtains can be up to 3.5m wide with a 3m drop.
Cool Awnings drop curtains are manufactured using a high frequency welding process, and have a 5 year warranty on most fabrics, labour and hardware.
Drop curtains are NOT suitable for high wind situations.
We do not use eyelets, which create stress points and and tend to tear.
On the bottom, we use a metal pipe in a bottom pocket which distributes the load evenly into the fabric. This is held down either by karibiners, attached by springs, or bungy cords which help to absorb shock loads.
If side fixings are required, we recommend Velcro, as this evenly distributes load into the fabric. It will also pull away from the post or wall in excessive wind, and help to protect the fabric.
Care must be taken to ensure that at least one panel can be burst open from inside in case of fire
